I started the year with 14 submissions in slush piles. Of those, 3 were rejected.
From January 1st to last February 17th, I've sent out 17 submissions. Of those, two were lost in cyberspace and four were rejected.
So, in total, I have 22 submissions currently in slush piles.
Before the end of March, I'm planning on sending out at least five more. This means revisions.
What does that look like?
Here's an example...
There I am self editing a manuscript, when I'm caught by a phrase. It reads like silk, smooth. But it isn't faithful to the narrator's voice. Re-write.
